    Postfoundationalism and Interdisciplinarity: A Response to Jerome Stone.J. Wentzel Van Huyssteen - 2000 - Zygon 35 (2):427-439.
    . In my recent work I argued that the religion and sciencedialogue is most successful when done locally and contextually. However, I also argued against theology's epistemic isolation in a pluralist, postmodern world, and for a postfoundationalist notion of human rationality that reveals the interdisciplinary, public nature of all theological reflection. I now want to explore the possibility that, when we look at what the prehistory of thehuman mind reveals about the biological roots of all human rationality, some forms of (...)

    Can We Still Talk About “Truth” and “Progress” in Interdisciplinary Thinking Today?J. Wentzel van Huyssteen - 2017 - Zygon 52 (3):777-789.
    On a cultural level, and for Christian theology as part of a long tradition in the evolution of religion, evolutionary epistemology “sets the stage,” as it were, for understanding the deep evolutionary impact of our ancestral history on the evolution of culture, and eventually on the evolution of disciplinary and interdisciplinary reflection. In the process of the evolution of human knowledge, our interpreted experiences and expectations of the world (and of the ultimate questions we humans typically pose to the world) (...)

    Is there still a realist challenge in postmodern theology? On religious experience and explanatory commitments in Jerome stone's "a minimalist vision of transcendence".J. Wentzel Van Huyssteen - 1994 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 15 (3):293-304.

    Is there still a realist challenge in postmodern theology?J. Wentzel van Huyssteen - 1995 - HTS Theological Studies 51 (1):3-12.
    In this article Jerome A Stone's neo-naturalistic philosophy of religion is critically assessed. Stone develops a minimalist model of the divine by means of retrieving experiences of transcendence in a plural secular society. The article aims at arguing that such a 'transactional realistic' concept of God is not only a-contextual, but also too generic. Although this is regarded as a postfoundationalist move by radical empiricism, it turns out to he not consonant with postmodernism’s celebration of true pluralism.

    Lecture One: Rediscovering Darwin for theology – Rethinking human personhood.J. Wentzel Van Huyssteen - 2017 - HTS Theological Studies 73 (3).
    In a series of three articles, presented at the Goshen Annual Conference on Science and Religion in 2015, with the theme ‘Interdisciplinary Theology and the Archeology of Personhood’, J. Wentzel van Huyssteen considers the problem of human evolution – also referred to as ‘the archaeology of personhood’ – and its broader impact on theological anthropology. These Goshen Lectures explore the potentiality that the history of human evolution provides bridge theories to theological anthropology and thus to a positive and constructive way (...)

    Rethinking the theory of evolution: New perspectives on human evolution and why it matters for Theology.J. Wentzel Van Huyssteen - 2016 - HTS Theological Studies 72 (4):1-5.
    This article addresses the issue of human imagination from the perspective of 'niche construction' in the wider discussion about 'what makes us human' and what it means to be a 'self', specifically for the Christian faith and for theology. In the article, a brief review of human origins and human evolution demonstrates the path and substantive impact of changes in behaviour, life histories and bodies in our human ancestors and us as humans ourselves. In the interactive process of niche construction, (...)

    Should We Be Trying So Hard to Be Postmodern? A Response to Drees, Haught, and Yeager.J. Wentzel Van Huyssteen - 1997 - Zygon 32 (4):567-584.
    This paper explores the thesis that both modernism and postmodernism, as contemporary cultural phenomena, have been unable to come to terms with the issue of human rationality in any positive way. As a result of this, nearly all of the stereotyped ways of relating theology and science through models of conflict, independence, consonance, harmony, integration, or dialogue are likely to be revealed as too simplistic generalizations about the relationship between these two dominant forces in our culture. What is proposed is (...)

    When Were We Persons? Why Hominid Evolution holds the Key to Embodied Personhood.J. Wentzel van Huyssteen - 2010 - Neue Zeitschrift für Systematicsche Theologie Und Religionsphilosophie 52 (4):329-349.
    SUMMARYIn this paper I want to ask whether human evolution as such might provide us with important links to theological anthropology and thus to a positive and constructive way of appropriating Darwinian thought for Christian theology. From a more philosophical point of view I am asking whether Darwin's perspective on human evolution can help us move forward to more constructive, holistic, notions of self and personhood? I will argue in this paper that in the history of hominid evolution we find (...)

  20. Primates, hominids, and humans—from species specificity to human uniqueness? A response to Barbara J. King, Gregory R. Peterson, Wesley J. Wildman, and Nancy R. Howell. [REVIEW]J. Wentzel Van Huyssteen - 2008 - Zygon 43 (2):505-525.
    In this response to essays by Barbara J. King, Gregory R. Peterson, Wesley J. Wildman, and Nancy R. Howell, I present arguments to counter some of the exciting and challenging questions from my colleagues. I take the opportunity to restate my argument for an interdisciplinary public theology, and by further developing the notion of transversality I argue for the specificity of the emerging theological dialogue with paleoanthropology and primatology. By arguing for a hermeneutics of the body, I respond to criticism (...)
